Big thanks to all that helped bring this mile-eating, odometer busting, highway haulin' "girl's bike" to life, like the gang at LowBrow for the hook up on the Zed bars, Voodoo for the metal mashing on the tank, Fulton Fred for the helmet paint job, Chop Doc's for the glossy black on the tins, and last but not least thanks to my Pop's shop North Bay Marine for all the motor work turning a mild mannered 883 into a fire breathing 1200 that can do wheelies and eat small children. See you all out on the road.
" This is my 1969 shovelhead frame with an s&s Evo, tank, bars and seat I got from lowbrow customs. Anything that could be powder coated was removed and done, Brett from SOLITARY CYCLES (in Australia) did all the fabrication, paint pipes and mods. I can't thank him enough for building this bike for me. Hope to see her in your mag !!! Nathan Green , Australia "
"Built this bike out of 2 bikes confiscated out here in Afghanistan, the first one was ridden up to a vehicle check point by a suicide bomber and it failed to detonateâ€¦EOD tore the wiring harness out and the frame was screwed. The other donor was a drug bike that an insurgent was using to try to out run US forces. The motor was fried. We took the two and chopped them up to make one cool little â€œsuicide bobberâ€ we call her our â€œHelmandâ€ Davidson. (Helmand is the province we Marines are responsible for out here in Afghanistan). Itâ€™s basically a Chinese knock off of a Honda CB 125. We chopped the shocks and plasma cut the springs to make seat springs, the head light is a casing off of a military DC 10 bulldozer, the struts were made out of tent poles..everything that wasnâ€™t needed to make her faster was ripped off and it has been up to 65 MPH so it runs strong. I miss my Bikes at home and this makes my third tour out here since 2009 (33 months in country) a little bit more bearableâ€¦
